Subject: From the audience
The review by jboyaquar comments regarding the opening of the second set: "Nice change of pace, opening with a "NFA." I was at that show and there is a reason for that change of pace. Several minutes before the band came back on stage for the second set, while the house lights were still up, some people in the audience started clapping out the rhythm to "Not Fade Away". I'm not sure when I became aware of the clapping, but like almost everybody else in the crowd I joined in. After a several minutes the house lights went out and the band came out on stage, all the while accompanied by the clapping rhythm. Eventually the musicians picked up their instruments and slowly joined in with the percussion section of 3,500 clapping hands. You can hear a bit of the clapping in the first few seconds of the file, and when Phil's bass is added to the mix and it becomes apparent that they are indeed going to follow our lead and play the song we started there is a huge audience reaction. I don't know how often this happened but it was one of the most memorable moments of audience interaction in the thirty or so Dead shows I saw. Truly a case where the music played the band.

Subject: Despite the sound's remoteness, this is a very good show from Winter '79
1st Set: "Promised" nicely explodes upon landing. It's a quick and darting performance. Jerry welcomes us with a "Candyman" that's awfully marred by the terrible muted sound quality. "Cassidy" is a ripsnorter. "Tennessee Jed" is nicely harmonized, but is stifled by a sluggish pace. Tho, Jerry does hit some nice notes when it counts. "Es Paso" is passionately read by Bobby. "Jack" sounds about the same as it did last night, but is a tad snappier and a tad less flavorful. "LLR" fills out the power ballad slot nicely as well as thematically fitting after the hard-won love affair of 'Jack.' The intent is there for "Stagger," but they have got to pick up its pace. "Passenger" is high-energy, if not particularly distinctive. One of the first "China/Rider's" since its Winterland 12/29/77 is well-received tho never takes off til the later, whose dynamite is Not fully appreciated by this yucky tape.

2nd Set: Nice change of pace, opening with a "NFA." Random excursions lead to a nice slide and lead interplay at 5:45 through 6:30. Jerry then takes off on his own magical journey til we reconvene to sing a haunting outro...things get quiet and then BOOM... "Miracle" time. Crowd certainly appreciating the silence to over the top rock n roll. "Bertha" continues the good times with an agreeable if not standout version. "Good Lovin" raises the stakes yet again, and now I'm pissed that this tape is providing only half the requisite sound quality needed to fully enjoy this impressive set. "From the Heart of Me" does what's necessary, and provide a moment to chill. Rumble me gently, let's sway to a soothing "He's Gone." It's patient, comforting and well-told; Jerry remains on stage with the drummers for an extended noodling session that's not distancing because of the hearty meal being presented to us by the band this evening. "Drums/Space" pass the test, which sails into a "Truckin" that's decent, but carries with it a little less energy, a little more mellow, than the songs pre-Drums. "Comes a Time" is a beautiful choice as something with the neglectful, mourning "Black Peter" or "Wharf Rat." "Around and Around" concludes matters on a righteous note, building us all into a slightly uncontained frenzy.
Let's continue the party by throwing KC a decent "Shakedown" encore.

If it wasn't for this shoddy tape, this would be a 4 star experience. As it is, it's a 3 1/2 rated downward for an honest appraisel of the sound.
